Swan

Swan

The Swan’s classic design is for those people who want more of a traditional dress watch, but one that can withstand the rigours of adventure, when needed.

 

Hand assembled in Switzerland and water resistant to 100m, with sapphire glass, it will take pretty much anything you care to throw at it, yet be smart and discrete enough to wear at a black-tie dinner.

 

Silver hour markers and ‘arrow’ points contrast with the white ‘semi pie pan’ dial to offer an understated look, yet make it easy to tell the time at a glance.

 

The Swan is a modern, yet classic watch, that celebrates the pioneering work of Joseph Swan.

  • Who was Joseph Swan?

    Born in 1828 in Sunderland, Joseph Swan was an English physicist, chemist, and inventor.

     

    He was an independent early developer of an incandescent lightbulb and owned the first home in the world to be illuminated by electricity. His bulbs were also used in the Savoy Theatre, London – the first public building in the world lit entirely by electricity – as well by the Royal Navy and in a safety lamp for miners.

     

    Often overshadowed by the work of rival, then business partner, Thomas Edison, Swan was a true pioneer.

     

    At Winton we celebrate unsung British pioneers, which is why the Swan has joined our portfolio.
